Sixteen Logansport, Indiana, Pharos-Tribune Predict Beck Will Soon Be Out Of Office Embattled President of Teamsters Unitm May Be Asked to Resign Job WASHINGTON (UP)— Informed sources predicted today that Teamster President Dave Beck will be out of a job in a matter of weeks. The sources said the beginning o£ the end for Beck as Teamster president would come today at a meeting of Teamster Secretary- Treasurer John F. English and several Teamster vice presidents. English—naimed Tuesday night to Beck's place on the AFL-CIO Executive Council—said a majority of the Teamsters' 13-man executive board will demand, probably sometime today, that Beck call a board meeting "within a week or 10 days." English said j he "wouldn't be surprised" if Beck were asked to resign at the mooting. Union sources said Beck would be asked to resign from Lhe post he has held since 1952 and that if he refused he would be forced out. They said English and other Teamster leadr?r.<> have decided that for the good of the union "Bock must go" before the union elections in September. The AFL-CIO Executive Council named English to council only a day after tossing Beck off of it for "gross misuse" of hundreds of thousands of dollars in Teamster funds as charged by the Senate Rackets Committee. The move gave English open backing of labor's high command in his efforts to oust Beck. English promptly announced he would support Teamster Vice President Jc/hn T. O'Brien of Chicago for Teamster president in September. O'Brien already has saitl he will run for th« giant union's top post. 36 HOU'RS WITH DEAD HUSBAND Seriously injured, Mrs. Elsa Deamicis, ,16, of Sacramento, Calif., Is removed from a wrecked auto after being trapped for more than 36 hours beside the body of her husband, Tony. _ The car In wlilch they were riding skidded off a highway 33 miles from Orovillc and was found at the bane of a 200-foot embankment.

Scottish Lass Introduces Whiffle Singing to U. S. CHICAGO (UP) — Nancy Whiskey is a skiffle singer. . Miss Whiskey, who doesn't drink very much, was flown here from London at the last minute to attend a juke box operators' convention. A sprightly Scottish lass of 21, she is all the rage in England, and is regarded as the leading female skiffle singer. • "Skiffle is a sort of rhythm," Miss Whiskey explained. "You might call it a cross between western country and rock porter. "Aye, American western country, of course," she said patiently. "American music is all the thing in England, you know." Some misguided soul suggested that England could take rock i and roll and western country and keep them. "We're doing better than that," she said. "We're taking them and giving them back to you." Miss Whiskey has made a recording' for Chic Records of a raucous number called "Freight and roll. Sort of rook-a-billy." j Train." And she was here to plug "Which western country?" sliest, was asked by a dumbfounded re-1 Somebody asked if her name teally is Whiskey, and how she came by it. "Unfortunately," she replied, "IL was my father's name." Her father was a Glasgow truck driver, and Nancy is the youngest of six children. She is "Scottish- Irish." "Not Scotch-Irish," she said. "Scotch is something you drink. Only I don't. I can't stand the stuff." The telephone jangled through- cut the interview, and people from the recoi'd company scurried to answer it. "I could never live here," she said. "Aye, it's too 'hectic." Story of Skiffle She said she has a new record coming out called "Green Back Dollar" written by the famed Car- Wednesday Evening, May 22, 1957. ter family of the hills of Carolina somewhere. A reporter allowed as how he never had heard of the Carters. Miss Whiskey protested that the Carters are famed folk music makers. She said the name "skiffle" was the brainchild of a group of English musicians who u.sed garbage cans for drums and played washboards. This group of serious artists latched onto a lonely American folk tune sung by a man named "Skiffle" many years ago, and used the name to denote the style of music. "I think SkiJfle was from Chicago," Miss Whiskey said hazily. Nobody .here ever heard of Skiffle either. Extinguish Blaze At Yonkers Raceway YOXKERS, N.Y.
